Columbia SC: The Real Southern Hot Spot
Sure, we've got grits but we've also got grit.
In the heart of South Carolina, tradition and tomorrow pair perfectly. As a creative hub that's fed by university and capital city communities, a gritty spirit and vibrant energy can be felt all around. It's a city where stately buildings buzz with new businesses and centuries-old sites give rise to fresh perspectives - all this in the midst of surrounding natural beauty. With an unexpected food & drink scene, festivals year-round and a local shopping scene, Columbia SC will leave you looking forward to what's next. When you're ready to plan your safe getaway, we'll be waiting with a glass of sweet tea, unless of course you prefer something barrel-aged or bacon-infused.
